Since Darden is a large corporation a there are not a lot of the benefits that you would receive from a family own restaurant like free meals on a shift, or the ability to influence decisions making processes. Also the company heavy advertisement of all you can eat specials often draws glutinous guest who are seeking deals and leave small tips. At the Olive Garden you are only allowed a three table section. This normally works fine at night but is very problematic during the day when check averages are significantly smaller.
Advice to Management

You would have a greater number of server willing to work day shifts and the labor costs would be reduced. Darden's strong emphasis on team work would absorb the added stress that a larger sections and still allow for the excellent service that the company strives for.
